With the popularity of TV’s, “The Biggest Loser,” it seems that every personal trainer on the planet is putting out their own kettlebell DVD.
But here’s the reality – most, if not all, kettlebell DVDs suck. They suck bad. Big, hairy… well, you know.
Now why is that? Why do all these DVDs suck so bad?
Is it the music?
Is it the setting or surroundings?
Or is it the “talent?”
The answer is -
(Drum roll pleas maestro…)
The Talent. It’s the talent. Or lack thereof.
See, most people don’t even know how to use kettlebells. And they’re taught by personal trainers who don’t know how to use kettlebells. Well, ok, they saw that TV Trainer on a late night informercial and borrowed a copy from a friend.
But those TV Trainers don’t know their backs from their backsides. They’re just on TV cause they look good and sound motivating. They don’t actually know very much at all. And they especially don’t know proper technique for all, let alone any of the kettlebell exercises. Exercises such as the kettlebell swing, where one female TV Trainer actually showed people how to blow out their lower backs on the swing.
So, what are you, the consumer supposed to do?
Research, amigo, research.
There’s one name and one name only that is associated with kettlebell excellence – Pavel.
Yes, the “Evil Russian” – the guy who reintroduced kettlebells to America back in 2001.
So any kettlebell DVD by Pavel receives two thumbs up.
His kettlebell exercise technique is stellar. His kettlebell workout designs are amazing. And his physical prowess leaves many guys in awe – including guys in the military and martial arts – both of which Pavel was a part of.
